There hasn’t been a whole lot of movement yet in the job search. I did get my resume critique back, and I did find a lot of the suggestions useful. I’ve also talked to my Transition Coach twice, and both times she provided great advice. She suggested reaching out to “target companies” directly, and really taking charge and ownership of my job search. This, along with networking, will definitely be a challenge as it is pretty out of my comfort zone. So far though, the resources and assistance that’s been provided has helped me focus a bit more on what I need to do to succeed and land a new job. I’m just hopeful that something great is on the horizon and all of this will have worked out for the best!
I have spent a good amount of time this week getting things organized around my apartment, which has been long neglected. I think it’s helping me stay positive, which is nice. I always find that cleaning things up and refreshing my surroundings also refreshes my mind, in a way. Maybe it’s just me trying to gain control over things I really have control of, which helps distract from the things outside of my control at the moment. (Side note: I’m pretty sure this is nesting? Am I nesting?!) Either way, it works for me, and my apartment is definitely looking a lot more tidy!
I’ve also been keeping up with my weekly Instagram posts, and recently went on the hunt for things to use in my mini photo shoots. I’m pretty excited for a few posts that will be released within the next month or so. These are the three I’ve posted so far!
As I mentioned last time, these will all be available for personalization in the future, so keep your eyes peeled for that. 🙂
Otherwise, things have been pretty much the same, but my outlook is definitely improving. Last week I was teetering on the edge of an existential crisis and I think that has been averted, so whew! I’m beginning to enjoy the time I have off of work now, and am definitely trying to make the most of it. I signed up for Skillshare yesterday, and I’m excited to watch some videos and learn some new stuff. If I find anything cool, I’ll be sure to let you all know so you can check it out too.
I’ll check back in soon! Hope you’re all doing great!
